Can I pull a permit to do the work myself?

Yes. A homeowner can pull a permit to make improvements on their own house. You can do your own design and prepare your own plans as long as they show compliance with all the applicable codes for structural, energy, fire prevention, and life/safety items. You will be responsible for these items. Liability prevents the City from designing your project for you.
